What should I expect for a good price on a 09 cammo rzr? I havent purchased anything atv in a while and I wasnt sure how much the polaris dealers are moving on the price?
thats a little more hard to answer but ill do my best here.
first, prices depend on two things, how well sales have been the last 9 months in the area you plan to buy, and also how sales have been at that particular dealership. for instance, there were a lot of shops in washington that were barely staying alive, but our shop was busier then it had ever been. through the summer we sold RZRs at full retail price with no fright or set up fees, and usually a discount on accessories.
MSRP for a 2009 Camo RZR is:
$11,399 before fright or set-up fees
first thing to negotiate down are these fees. there is NO REASON a dealer needs to charge these. yes, it is true that polaris charges the dealer a freight and set up fee on every machine, but if a dealer sold u a camo RZR at full retail with no freight or set up, they are still making about $900 profit on the machine.
just casually ask your salesperson how sales have been going. you never know, they might go a couple hundred bucks down, it all depends on how there sales have been, and how many they are sitting on.
other places to negotiate is accessories. try to get 10% to 20% off on accessories you purchase with the machine. if you dont want acc. ask for $200 or $300 parts/acc. credit that you can us later.
try to get labor about 50% off if you get accessories. if a shop charges $70 bucks an hour to install, and pays someone $10 bucks an hour . . .u can see there is a big profit margin there.
just remember your dealer needs to make some money so they can still be around to help you.
finally, if you walked into our shop and wanted to buy, we would probably do something close to this.
no freight or set up
ACC. 10% off retail (dealers make about 30% of retail price, and 70% of retail is their cost)
Labor 50% off
DONT BE AFRAID TO WALK OUT if they wont work with you much. RZR sales have slowed and most dealers have them in stock now, which means deals are to be made. there is nothing more a sales manager hates then to lose a RZR sale over $300 in labor or acc. if you do walk, leave them your number and have them call you if they can do a little better. i bet you get a phone call in a few hours of leaving. dont be greedy, just be firm. let the dealer make some money, just dont get screwed either.
if they have been slow, you might offer them $11,000 bucks before tax and lic. they would still make $500 profit on it.
hope that helps, sorry for the long post.
anything else let me know. ill be around!
best of luck in your hunt
